"The Hunger Games": Mattel unveils Katniss Everdeen Barbie doll

Mattel's Katniss Everdeen doll, from its Barbie Collector line.

(CBS News) Last month, Mattel announced it was creating a Barbie doll of "The Hunger Games" heroine Katniss Everdeen.

Now, fans of Suzanne Collins' books and the blockbuster film can see what the doll will look like.

Mattel unveiled the doll, which is part of its Barbie Collector line, on Monday.

The replica is dressed in what the District 12 tribute wears in the Games - green pants, black shirt, boots and a black jacket with orange trim. She carries Katniss' weapon of choice - a bow and quiver of arrows - and has a gold Mockingjay pin on her lapel. Like Katniss, the doll's hair is secured in a loose braid.

The doll retails for $29.95 and is available for pre-order on BarbieCollector.com. It will be released in August 2012, to coincide with the DVD debut of "The Hunger Games."

"Katniss" joins other dolls in the Barbie Collector line, including Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and "Twilight" characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.
